is this r^2 + s^2?

If so I would Say A.

If not I would Say E.

If (r,s) lies on the circle, then if we are told the radius, we can find out r^2 + s^2 using pythagoras theorem

(1) If radius is 2, then r^2+s^2 = 4. So (1) is sufficient

(2) is not sufficient, as we do not have a radius to equate and no other information pertaining to v2 and -v2 is given

So (A) is the answer
